Entry Description

"Life Is But A Dream" reminds us of the importance of stepping back and observing from a distance. It offers a feeling of inspiration which can be gleaned by a glance across generations; the older foursome on the far left, the middle-aged main observer in the forefront, the younger self-absorbed women on the immediate right, and the two oblivious, fun-loving young kids on the far right. This game of life presents us with challenges every moment of every day. Yet, we can maintain a feeling of peace when we understand, it is up to us to choose how we move through these challenges; with fun-loving grace, or with great pain - it is a simple choice and it is ours alone.

About Photographer

In the last few years, Doris and her Nikon D810 have been travelling the wilds solo; sidestepping up the tallest dunes in North America, hiking 211 miles with a final step atop the tallest peak in the lower 48, hiking every marked and unmarked trail around a live volcano, climbing over fallen trees through ethereal gorges, and rolling out of her truck at four in the morning, in icy temperatures, to hike to the top of a lookout for that breathtaking sunrise. Life took a dramatic twist in 2014, and is now empowering Doris to pursue full-tilt - life as a Professional Landscape Photographer.
